Deputy of the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan Ruslan Kazakbaev proposed to introduce a tax on Google in Kyrgyzstan. He announced this at a parliament meeting today.
According to him, many companies pay thousands of dollars for advertising of their products on social networks Facebook, Instagram, Twitter.
«For example, every university pays $ 500 to Facebook a month. If universities pay so much, then one can guess how much commercial companies pay. Experts say that we lose from 500 million to 1 billion soms because of the absence of a relevant law. Pages of all the companies are on all these resources (Facebook, Instagram), and they transfer payments through a bank, and these Internet resources pay taxes in their countries. We can adopt the experience of Russia on the tax on Facebook,» said the deputy.
He added that the introduction of such a tax would not affect the cost of services.
